Meditation: On Fear & Success

*********************

Is fear anything more than just that: Fear? Any fear we have likely has no basis in reality – it is often not an actual harm to the body, but merely an un-choice based around perception of outcome without testing for bounds of actuality. Fear by nature assumes the worst outcome while not allowing for the possibility of the best.

What if instead we chose to try? Try for the best whilst controlling for worse cases all while attempting to not be presumptuous?

Fear is black and white.

But life – Life is clearly grey.

Life allows for a hue of successes and failures on a curvaceous path filled with serendipity, nuance, finesse, idiocrasy, opportunity, despair, illusion, doubt and achievement.

Life allows for more than one outcome, no outcome and all outcomes together. Perhaps the only true hurdle between fear and success is choice – with the rest being determined action? Doing what is feared one step at a time until what was once feared becomes commonplace and even mastered.
